Hyperion is a novel by Friedrich Hölderlin first published in 1797 (Volume 1) and 1799 (Volume 2). The full title is Hyperion, oder der Eremit in Griechenland.

The work is comprised of letters from Hyperion to his friends Bellarmin and the writer Diotima. It is set in Greece and deals with invisible forces, conflicts, beauty and hope.

Italian composer Luigi Nono includes passages from this work in his work Fragmente-Stille, an Diotima for string quartet (1980), as part of the score to be "sung" silently by the performers while playing the piece.
